Thanks for the rc release. :)

It would be nice if cabal allowed more choice or configuration
of install directories IMHO: in particular libdir comes to
mind.  Also it would be nice if the default was multilib aware
(eg for Fedora on x86_64 libdir is "/usr/lib64").

Personally I would like to see ghc libraries at least installed
under ghc's libdir since their ABI depends on the version of ghc
they are built with, ie typically under $libdir/ghc-$ghc_version/
rather than $libdir.
